So here’s something to listen to–the great voice of Ken Nordine reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Conqueror Worm”, from the album Closed On Account Of Rabies:

It’s a great album, also featuring Christopher Walken reading “The Raven”, Iggy Pop reading “The Telltale Heart”, Gabriel Byrne reading “The Masque Of The Red Death”, and, my absolute favorite and something I listen to on Halloween every year, Diamanda Galas reading “The Black Cat”. All of these can be found on YouTube.

So what’s up with you?

OK, that was weird, almost as weird as a cabbage bra.

WVU plays #5 TCU in Fort Worth tonight. It’s either going to be a major upset in the vein of 48-41 WVU, or the far more likely result of 55-38 TCU.

Drinking Jameson & ginger and drawing the Devil’s Rejects waaaayyyyy past its due date is not the best way to spend an early Thursday… but it’s not the worst one, either.

I was planning to do a CSI parody article about the hunt for the sniper who took out Jamaal Charles and Arian Foster, but “work” got in the way.

NO MR. CLIENT MAN, I DON’T CARE THAT YOUR HOSPITAL PRIVILEGES GOT YANKED! MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE THROWN A SCALPEL AT THAT NURSE!

It was an accident. After all, is there evidence that the quarterback surgeon made an intentional forward movement of his arm to start a forward pass scalpel-throwing trick?

The Right Reverend Electric Mayhem

But the nurse had gotten both retractors down in the sterile field, constituting a “medical move” .

I have done a handful of Lease deals with doctors. Holy fucking shit, you have to have the patience of Job if’n you lawyer with them on a daily basis.

Even when they’re not asses, as a certain GOP Presidential candidate aptly demonstrates, the amount they know/understand about stuff other than medicine is virtually nil.

And that includes “knowing what they don’t know.”

The Right Reverend Electric Mayhem

Yeah, health law was perhaps not the smartest specialty. On the upside…um…lemme get back to you.

Theoretically…they pay their bills without bitching too much?

HA!

This is a pretty funny Simpsons + Rick & Morty mashup. http://imgur.com/gallery/IZnVZ

Adam Ant’s “Goody Two Shoes” is on the radio. I used to manically dance to this to make my oldest kid laugh when she was a baby. Awwwww.

I’m sitting in traffic driving my kid to a choral performance. It’s in the boonies, so I get to sit in the car for 90 minutes until the thing begins, then likely miss first half of RiveBrog.

Thank God my fucked up neck (woohoo, domino effect – beware, PeyPey) led to a new batch of Vicuprofen yesterday afternoon. And I have a book. Nic Pizzolatto’s short story collection. Teh early hopelessness.

Now I have to seek out Walken reading The Raven..

“Once…uponamidnightdreary, while I pondered, (raspy whisper) weak and weary,
Over… many…. a (voice goes high-pitched and then breaks)quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
(raspy whisper again) While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one *gently* rapping, (fast-paced raspy whisper)rappingatmychamber door.

And “The Simpsons” version, read by James Earl Jones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLSmhpwLdEQ

I listened to this version, and it’s decent, but that guitar is aggravating. On the YouTube page there was a link to the poem as read by Christiopher Lee, and all I could think of was that this was he did to Gandalf the entire time he had G locked in his tower.

The one with Vincent Price has an appearance by a real raven.

I’m basking in enjoyment of the fact that at this point in the season I’m not obsessing very much over my fantasy football teams because my REAL football team is actually having a respectable season and I haven’t had to give up on them yet.
